KUCHING, July 17 (Bernama) -- Schools' alumni should help their respective school and the development of the students, particularly concerning the welfare of underprivileged students, said Sarawak Minister of Local Government Datuk Prof Dr Sim Kui Hian.

"As former students it is your responsibility to help the welfare of other students in need and to ensure that none of the students had to quit pursuing studies only due to financial constraints," he said.

He said this in his speech read by political secretary to the Chief Minister Michael Tiang at Green Road Secondary School (GRSS) alumni homecoming dinner here last night.

Dr Sim said alumni should assist to make the school a conducive environment for education, adding that the pursuit of these alumni as an avenue was to give back to the community besides functioning as role models for current students.

In conjunction with the school's 52 years celebration, he called on former students to renew their resolve to ensure the continuity and excellence of the school and assist in the development of Greenians, especially underprivileged juniors.

"It is very important for all ex-Greenians to join and support the alumni and reinforce our commitment and cooperation in forming a respected community of GRSS Alumni and devoted to this beloved country," he added.

Meanwhile organising chairperson of the GRSS Alumni homecoming dinner Dr Haseanti Hussein said the alumni provided a platform in which all ex-Greenians could unite and contribute back to the school and the community.

"Our alumni give us the opportunity for networking and everybody plays an integral part in building this nation," she said.

Also present at the dinner were the Malaysian National News Agency (Bernama) chairman Datuk Seri Azman Ujang, who is also GRSS Alumni advisor, and SMK Green Road principal Catherine Ritikos@Fizah Abdullah.
